II. Consider Narrowing the Topic so that you’re exploring one or several specific focuses. If you’re pro-human genetic engineering, consider focusing on something like its potential to improve heath, athleticism, +/or intelligence; if you’re opposed, consider focusing on its implications such as health, morality, a social elite, unforeseen consequences, etc.
III. Research: Then perform research of your own from these different types of sources. You could research facts, statistics, or expert opinions related to your topic. Make sure you collect the citation/bibliographic information MLA format for your Works Cited list (emailing yourself the article with the citation is the safest bet). When you research, check to make sure the source is credible, relevant, representative, and sufficient (review Ch. 14 if you need to review what these terms mean).
